cargo runto launch the application.
scripts/build.batto build a release binary into the
Windows Subsystem for Linux
scripts/wsl.sh from a Debian-based WSL environment to quickly install Rust and CMake into WSL.
docker build --output out . to build a release binary into the
out/ folder on the host. BuildKit is required.
This project exists 1) because I couldn't find any tree-based file manager I liked and 2) because I wanted to have fun writing Rust, and I don't really want to spend time reading and reviewing pull requests.
For now, issues are closed, and I'm not accepting any major contributions — especially ones related to the roadmap. If you have a small idea, issue, or pull request, feel free to start a discussion.
